MERRILLVILLE | Interested and prospective volunteers are invited to a one-hour Volunteer Orientation and Training Session at 1:30 p.m. Thursday in the Meals on Wheels Community Room, 8446 Virginia St. Applicants will have an opportunity to tour the facility and ask questions about MOW services.

Volunteer Manager Joan Vith noted that volunteers are needed for routes throughout Lake County. “However, at the moment, we are particularly in need in the Lake Station and Hobart areas,” she said.

“In addition to individuals, many area organizations and businesses participate in our corporate volunteer program. We are confident businesses and organizations in Lake Station and Hobart will assist us,” Vith added.

Each day, volunteers assist in the delivery of more than 1,200 meals. Volunteers drive their own vehicle and deliver meals within their own community, with flexible monthly scheduling. Each route takes about 90 minutes to deliver.

To register or for more information, contact Vith at (219) 756-3663 or
